    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Guys, guys, I don't know what to do about this one. I was all set to sell my bottle because I'm not Lolita's biggest fan, but today I'm wearing a green pea coat and for some reason it just seems perfect! What to do, what to do. I don't have another perfume that will match this coat! It's actually a much brighter green than it looks on the website. Maybe Chamade, or Violetta di Bosco, or Y. But for some reason Lolita seems perfect for these pre-Christmas days. Must be the gourmand thing.

    I'm not alone in worrying about things like this, am I? Surely not, on Basenotes!

    Vanille Tonka is such a lovely scent!! I must get around to buying a full bottle of this

    My scent of the day was Thierry Mulger Angel Eau de Star; for the Melbourne weather that can't make up it's mind I chose the fragrance that can't make up it's mind. Eau de Star is a funny balance between fresh and heavy

    Good morning! It's going to be a beautiful sunny day here in Minnesota.
    So nice that I feel like En Passant by Frederic Malle for my SotD, a very
    realistic white lilac.

    Mel lou, keep the LL. I bet you would miss it. It has it's moments for filling a craving.

    That's too funny, mel-lou, and I can relate to it.

    As for SotD, I'm sampling Spiritueuse Double Vanille.

    Brisk Caron Alpona for a morning of lazying around.

    LL is one of the scents that I can't do when I have a bottle and miss it terribly when I run out of it. Keep it. Or, get rid of it keeping a small decant and sniff -- with the perspective to buy, of course! -- a different take on violet by Stephen Jones.

    YSL's Yvresse. It is cold and rainy and Yvresse is like a big hug.

    Mel_lou, keep Lolita. I can't wear it every day, but when you need it, it's irreplaceable.

    Hypnotic Poison Elixir from a sample.


    The day before yesterday I took a shower in the evening and wore regular Hypnotic Poison for a night. Next day I woke up at 4 to fly out to DC, and it was still going relatively strong, I was even worried that it would be overwhelming for people I'll fly with -- after several hours! It did become fainter, but I was catching whiffs during the flight! what a joy -- not to be sans scent in flight!..

    Mitsouko (vintage EdT and 'new' EdT) by Guerlain



    The various (re)formulations and strengths (EdC, EdT, EdP, parfum) make wearing Mitsouko always a surprise: What is it going to smell like this time!? Combining the two Eau de Toilettes, like I did today, yields a magical combination. The upfront fizzy brightness of the new juice tempers the angry green scratch of the vintage juice. Plus I smell two types of peach. The fruity porcelain-like smoothness of the new juice and the dark, pithy slightly bruised peach in the vintage.

    It's cloudy outside and yet I feel like a million bucks in this scent. It never ceases to amaze me.

    Yardley English Rose today.

    I don't see many mentions of this rose fragrance but it's really nice, always a mood lifter for me, and quite inexpensive ($13.97 for 125 ml; see shoplondons.com.)

    Ah, Furriner, I adore that graphic from the Dzing! bottle, and have wished for a long time I could get it on a cute little t-shirt.
    mikepererez23, I always feel like a milllion bucks in Mitsouko, too. It's so very special!
